How to Draw Tattoo Art

Step 1.

Start off by making a circle for the head of the skull, and then add the outlined shape of the open jaw like so. The next and last thing to do is draw in the guidelines for the face, and wings.

Step 2.

Begin sketching out the actual shape of the head, and then the brow like so. When that is done, you can draw in the shape of the left side of the cheek and upper jaw.

Step 3.

You will now start drawing out the right cheek bone structure like so, and then draw the top part of the gum line. Next, draw in the shape of the screaming jaw like so and then draw in the eye sockets like you see here. Before leaving this step you w   

Step 4.

It's now time to color in the eyes, draw out and color in the nose, and then slowly draw the shape of the tribal like wings. Once that is all done you can begin drawing the teeth like so, and add some detailing around the top of the jaw, and on the b   

Step 5.

Add some definition detailing to the screaming mouth, and then draw in the lower row of teeth. Once that is done add detailing to the wings, and then add a fang to the left side of the top row of teeth like so.

Step 6.

Before you color in the mouth, you will have to draw out the long whipping tongue like so. Once that is done you can color in the void of the mouth, and then start erasing all the lines and shapes you drew in step one.

Step 7.

When you are all done, your tattoo art should look like the one you see here. See how nice it came out, and it wasn't even all that hard.

Description: Yesterday was such a fun day because I got to draw some really cool stuff that I later turned into tutorials. The first lesson I will be uploading is going to teach all that want to learn, "how to draw tattoo art", step by step. I have so many different designs that I submitted over time as tattoos, and so far they have all been liked. I’m sure there are some artists that disliked some of the tattoo art that is on the site, and that is totally fine because everybody has a right to their own opinion. Anyways, this tattoo design is of a screaming skull with blazing wings. I personally think that the drawing came out awesome, and I can also totally see this design on the body of both male and female. A female version of this tattoo would only look good if it were small, and the male version of the tattoo would look good medium to large on a shoulder or calf. As for the complexity level of replicating what I have created, believe it or not, but it’s not going to be that difficult. I know how much a lot of the members on Dragoart love skulls and tattoo designs, and because of this fact I wanted to make sure that everyone was able to tackle this lesson with little difficulty. I think you will have fun learning "how to draw tattoo art", and when you are done you can look over your work, and maybe add some of your own personal touches to make it even more screaming. I have to go because there is a lot of work ahead of me. Keep your eyes open to see what else I have in store for you. Adios peeps, and have fun.
